I actually made this bridge from the island, to the mainland. It wasn't too far, but it took around 200 blocks or so. When I got there, I found some pumpkins, so now I have a very unique house. If u ever get pumpkins in the future, put one on your head, its actually really cool, but I wont spoil the surprise. I think my house is very good, with a lot of book cases, mossy cobblestone, and 2 jukeboxes. I have a decent farm going on, and a huge reed farm. I never knew how hard making bookcases is.
Ladders to get to the bone/ arrow collection room.
I have something a tad bit easier:
The skellies fall and start drowing immediately. Then there's one single collection block that the water goes into, so I can just sit there, press "i", go about my business on my computer for a couple of hours, switch back, and wallah: Inventory full of Arrows and Bones.
After wandering around the cave for hourse i finally try to dig straight up and stacking blocks... I come up in the ocean next to some strange land mass, i have no redstone on me along with no coal. Where the hell am i!!!!
